And still no NBC.Just announced Me will be coming to Watertown,no firm date when,just sometime this summer.
Yeah the FOX HD 28.1 (actual 35) is on the transmitter 7 was using for testing before the digital transition.Then 7 got to keep the vhf 7 so they decided to use the 35 xmitter for FOX HD,with FOX SD on 7.2 just because it reaches out further.FOX was originally 28 analog,really low power.For awhile we had Fox digital on 7.2,Fox analog on 28 and Fox HD on 28.1(35),they finally turned the analog 28 off.very cool!
I wonder if KEYC in Mankato, MN (which is the only other station owned by United) will add it too. The only difference is I know there you have 2 stations and they are putting it on the low powered Fox affiliate. In Mankato they also have CBS & FOX but they only have one station (KEYC)
Depending on the weather we can get NBC from Utica,Syracuse or Rochester,not often or reliably of course.Back in the day when we had a grand total of 2 stations,7 CBS,16 PBS,7 was able to pick and choose shows from both ABC and NBC and run them.I get NBC off the big dish but except for NASCAR they don't have anything I want to watch anyway.And still no NBC.
Was only counting the Amurican stations .With CKWS we got 3 stations you could get with just bunny ears.With a decent antenna could get Syracuse fairly decent,Ottawa,ch6 CTV from Deseronto(still there in glorious analog).Depending on the weather could also get Rochester,Buffalo,Utica and Binghamton tho rarely.For awhile there were a bunch of low powers just across the the border with TV Ontario and Radio Canada(French CBC),but those are gone now.what about CKWS CBC 11 from Kingston?
(I know its no longer CBC which sucks for you guys.)
